DR. PECK HOUSE

CITY OF ST. AUGUSTINE, FLORIDA

EXTERIOR CONDITION & RECOMMENDATIONS


PREPARED BY HISTORIC PROPERTIES ASSOCIATES

August 23, 1988


GENERAL DESCRIPTION: The Dr. Peck house is composed of two
distinct elements. The first is the historic component. This is
a two story "L" shaped structure with coquina masonry walls -on
the first floor and a post and beam wood second story. The
siding on the north and west is smooth and half-lapped. This same
siding is also on the south end of the west wing. Beveled siding
has been applied to the balance of the second floor. The roof is
very low pitched, has concealed gutters, and is covered with
standing-seam metal.

The second element is a reconstruction of the.mc-as-ng east wing.
It is a one story unit- masonry structure with a flat roof hidden
behind a parapet wall. This portion of the structure was
constructed in 19** as a part of a major restoration effort
involving the historic section.

CONDITION:


WALKS The entry walk around the ****** tree has been displaced

by root action. 64ey" d e SJ. tat iS4lo Ab-C )



GARDEN WALLS There are several large cracks in the walls due to

differential settlement/root action. The unit-masonry is "reading

through is several places. This is probably due to differences in

the coeffiency of expansion between the concrete block and the


stucco.






EXTERIOR WALLS, GND. FL. All of the masonry walls appear to be

in good condition. Several holes left from the installation of

earlier signage were noted. The paint is in fair condition.

There were no obvious signs of failure of the material.



EXTERIOR WALLS, SECOND FL. The wood siding is in generally good

condition. There is evidence of some rot at the SW corner but it

appears to be minor.

The paint covering the siding is badly deteriorated. This is

especially true on the west side where it is most exposed to the

sun. Staining from rusting nails was observed on all elevations.



SOUTH BALCONY Several of the posts supporting the roof have

begun to rot at the bottom. The flooring has twisted and pulled

loose in some areas. It is also beginning to check and crack

badly especially on the exposed ends.

The paint is completely deteriorated on this portion of the

structure.
, . .. .. .


WINDOWS Approximately twelve pair of sash are in need of

reglazing and some repairs. The balance will only require

painting. All of the shutters are deteriorated. Joints are opened

up, molding is missing, and the paint is deteriorated.



DOORS Appear to be in good condition. Will require cleaning and

painting.

The iron grill covering the west door is rusting. It is larger




than the opening and appears to be inappropriate.


ROOF The roof itself was not inspected, however there is
evidence of a leak on the north wall of the northwest room on the
ground floor. This could be indicatative of a problem with the
"Z" flashing at the intersection of the wood siding and the
masonry or po~sei-b a problem at roof level.
